Deferring your pension

A deferred member is someone who no longer pays into the Scheme but has qualified for retirement benefits that they can claim from age 55. It’s important to understand what happens to your benefits while you’re a deferred member.

Each year you can check an updated Benefit Statement to see how your pension has changed via My Pension Online.
